    Default The chaos of Incarna (EVE Online)

    As an old NGE-veteran I can now say that I'm a sad Incarna-veteran (EVE Online). unsubbed earlier today.

    I couldn't care less about a fucking $70 monocle. People need to stop whining over cosmetical items. Pay-to-win itemstore - different story.

    poor fags feel left out, they started selling vanity stuff overprized

    in df terms: they offer virtual santa hats for 50$ and everyone who bought it is trolling the rest why they are so poor that they cant afford one and the masses take the bait

    +there was a leaked dev pdf discussing cash shops for their games (eve,dust,world of darkness) and while it itself is pretty reasonable worth of mouth made it look like they are sheming how to get you selling your firstborn for virtual goods

    overall pretty disapointing regarding the eve community, makes it look like wow kids

    You should feel ashamed for joining up with such a group of whiny children.

    It's a fucking vanity item. The entire purpose of the item is that not everyone should have it - and with a price tag of $70, you can bet your ass that not everyone will have it.

    So what items are they selling that aren't vanity items?

    PLEx allows you to buy an advantage in the game, but never buy anything you can't get through normal play.

    Microtransacations kill the immersion, so I really hope they decide not to implement them.

    Also, holy shit. The official apology and plea for Parley thread on the eve forums has almost 900k views. Holy shit.. over 9,000 posts. IT"S OVER 9,000!!!!

    There is something to be said with keeping the immersion of a game intack... not that anyone cares about this anymore.

    Bullshit, this has nothing to do with immersion. This is purely about poor people whining that they don't want to feel pressured into buying a bullshit monocle.

    Never mind the fact that Microtransactions would allow CCP to expand their company, release more content faster, and deliver an overall better product. Never mind that at all.

    15 bucks a month x however many people they bring in. More than enough.

    Yes, it does kill the immersion. Everytime I see that monocle on someone I know the only way they bought it is using real world money. That brings me back to the real world. I don't want to be prompted or even think about an item shop in an MMO.


    Yummy.

    You're obviously not an entrepreneur. There is no such thing as "more than enough" when it comes to accumulating money to expand your business.

    How do you know they didn't buy the plexes with in-game cash?

    Pay to win is in the pipeline. I don't think too many care about the monocles and macrotransaction pants and that kind of shit, that's just comedy. The threadnaughts started when that internal newsletter about future plans was leaked.

    EVE is so entertaining even with inactive sub.

    Won't happen, and I can guarantee it. Anyone that thinks otherwise must think that the developers at CCP eat paint.
